Sleeping and Sleeping and Mostly Sleeping
Have you ever had a lot of sleep and yet still need more? I just want more sleep and more and more and more. When I'm awake I worry and stress and make myself ill. I just want to go sleep forever. Yes I suffer the horror of nightmares but I just need to sleep. I need it, I need it!
The wedding is now less than two months away and I'm so scared that we won't get it all done in time. I wanted it to be a quiet day, just about the two of us with a couple of gothic wedding touches but alas it's just going to turn out like every other wedding. Sigh!
My partner and I have finally got a place of our own. We moved this weekend. Everything's all over the place and I'm happy to have our own space but I'm really nervous but I don't know why. It's what I've dreamt of for so long and I guess I'm scared that the reality won't live up to the dream. I'm sick of my wacky mixed up feelings and wish I could just enjoy this. I'm such a freak!

Books I've read this month - October
I've only read one book this month (*shame*)
The first book is Lucky by Alice Sebold. Let me start by saying that this book is simply amazing. It's the true life story of how Alice Sebold was raped and how she fought her way through the aftermath to put her life back together. It is completely harrowing in places yet entirely moving and inspiring. I am amazed at just how much this book has affected me; I didn't think that I could let anything get in that far any more. I recommend this book to everyone.
I've spent day and night this week working on my teaching portfolio. It was wonderful to get that damn thing handed it. The whole thing was so large that my ringbinder wouldn't even close when I'd finished.
To be perfectly honest I'm sick of my stupid degree, I no longer want to teach and the sooner it's all over the better.
